Join Lilah Fitzgerald to discuss her recent book STARS & SWASHBUCKLERSABOUT THE BOOKMonsters eat dreams.Yes or no?Far in the future, earth has split apart into thousands of islands dangling between the stars.

Book Talk! Sascha Rothchild’s BLOOD SUGAR

Chevalier's Books 133 North Larchmont Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA, United States

Join Sascha Rothchild to discuss her recent book BLOOD SUGARABOUT THE BOOK AND AUTHORQUICK TAKE: A New York Times Book Review Best Thriller of 2022 that received critical acclaim from outlets like Cosmopolitan, New York Post, FIRST For Women, CrimeReads, Paste, PopSugar, and BookPage, BLOOD SUGAR tells the story of Ruby Simon, an absurdly likeable murderess accused of killing her husband—ironically, the only murder she didn’t commit.

After gaining notoriety first for her 2004 stint on public radio show “This American Life” and then for her comedic yet heartfelt memoir-turned-screenplay, How Read More ...
